Continental congress at First Friday


We bring you a new approach to intercontinental congress. Artist Buster Simpson took this photo of African delegates meeting George Washington at First Friday. The Africans–some of them also appear in the previous post–were in town to lend their talent to the Art Museum’s show, “African Art, African Voices.”

George Washington was an actor participating in Simpson’s installation of Windsor chairs made from wooden pallets at Temple Gallery in Old City (see Roberta’s posts here and here). The regalia was splendid all around.
